Thieves are targeting a part of your car that could cost you hundreds of dollars to replace, said Edmond Police. 

It may not look like much, but your catalytic converter is worth more than it looks. Three precious metals lay inside the car part and they are what the thieves are after.

Experts said the biggest targets are trucks and SUVs because they're higher off the ground.
